Garden update


Today we had a break in the weather this morning. It was beautiful and crisp fall morning. Our trees in our area have begun to change to their fall colors.

The picture above is how our strawberry patch look at the end of this gardening season.The picture below is from early this spring, when I transplanted them from the smaller wooded bed beside it. The funny thing is if you look close at these two pictures CoCo is in both of those  photos. She likes to lie under the pear tree and watch us work.



Hubby said I am going to finish weed eating the last bed for the season. We had two rows in front of the carrots left to weed. He planned to take down the wooded supports for the peas and the strings down. The picture below is how it looks now. The potates and carrots are not ready to be harvested yet.


Today I was working in the house. I was throwing in a few loads of laundry. I decided to wash our hall Rag rug. The rug was filthy from all the rain we have had. The season is changing quickly and such sunny days are rare. Dark clouds and hard winds started coming in over us. Miss Piggy showed up and made our work harder. She decided to help hubby dig in the garden. Our dogs are trained to stay out of our vegetable garden beds. I spent a half hour running around training  Miss Piggy. My dogs were just a tired of her as I was by the time I took her home. She was overly excited and biting them too hard.

  1. what is the purpose of the glass jars on the poles?

    • We stretch a green net across the strawberry bed to keep birds and rabbits from eating the berries.We noticed that the net would slide down the sticks and the net would lie on top of the strawberry plants. The birds could sit on the plants and peck at the berries through the net. The jars on the sticks also prevents the sticks from ripping the net when the wind blows. The sticks raise the height of the net which makes it difficult for the birds to reach any strawberries.
